Torino offer Jason Denayer €2m salary and open talks with Oumar Solet

As reported by Ignazio Genuardi, Belgian centre-back Jason Denayer is close to joining Italian club Torino as a free agent after leaving Lyon this summer at the end of his contract in June.

The Serie A side have offered the 27-year-old defender a two year deal in Italy, with the option for another further season, while the deal includes a salary of roughly €2m net per year. The player’s wage demands had been the main stumbling block in his contract talks with OL last season while Rennes, having opened talks this summer too, also struggled to agree a deal with the player.

Torino, however, still face competition to sign Denayer from Turkish clubs and the Italian side are also speaking with another former Lyon defender, Oumar Solet, now of Red Bull Salzburg, over joining the club this summer as they search for a replacement for Brazilian defender Bremer who recently left to join Juventus.
